Copyright of cdegroot's pages?


I have noticed that the recent addition you made to the Yashica page comes from this page of the Photo Wiki managed by Cees de Groot. I would be surprised if the content of this Photo Wiki was compatible with Camerapedia's GFDL license: at the bottom of the page, I read " Copyright (C)2000 Cees de Groot -- All rights reserved ". I am sorry, but I will be forced to revert your contribution if you cannot point me to a page that clearly states otherwise, for example saying that the content of cdegroot's wiki site is under the GFDL license. --Rebollo fr 19:04, 22 May 2006 (EDT)

Hi Rebollo: If you will note the attribution at the bottom of the Yashica History article you cite, you will notice the author's name - 'Glen', which is myself ("You are also promising us that you wrote this yourself.."). The article I contributed to Cees' page was MY contribution to a free interactive Wiki page, modifiable by others (just as it is here). Copyright protection of the original article and history, if any, could be reserved only by the original author, myself. But feel free to contact Cees if you have other questions, he's a fine fellow, and well aware of the article, see this 2005 Announcement: --Glenmark
Hello and thank you for the clarification. I did not understand very well how the whole content of a freely editable wiki site could be copyrighted by one person only, but I prefered to ask precisions rather than risking to let a copyright violation slip into camerapedia. The high quality of your contribution is much appreciated, and I apologize for the above misunderstanding. --Rebollo fr 12:15, 23 May 2006 (EDT)
